Today more than ever we are looking for ways to reconnect with our heritage, looking for things that link us with the past, authentic, timeless, things that make the past come alive and that’s why we have used Irish wood that carries in its very DNA the history of Ireland to craft these classically designed writing instruments.
If you are looking for a special gift for a very special couple that will become part of its owner’s life and will acknowledge their creative personality the Woodland gift set we believe is will exceed your expectations.
The pens are made with Irish Grown Elm, a rare wood in itself self but we have taken this set one step further by using BURLED Irish Elm. The grain and colour of this wood are so beautiful, you could say that the patterns are manic, nothing makes sense, and that what makes it so rare and so different. The Elm came originally from the midlands of Ireland, we got the wood from a clockmaker who retired and had lots of Elm offcuts built up in his stores for over 30 years, too small for his work but perfect for our pens. Only a tiny proportion of the wood was burled making your pen extra special, rare and unique also!
Bog Oak is older than the Pyramids, the wood in the pen has restated for thousand of years in the in bog waters absorbing the country's very DNA. The blackness and grain pattern of this very special wood is your certainty that each pen is completely unique, no two pens are the same or could be the same, it not ofter you get the opportunity to hold something as rear or old in your hand every day. The beauty of Bog Oak is in its feel and colour, so to ensure we don’t mask that experience we finish our pens in the same oils Irish Bog Oak sculptors use so you can experience every minute of the 5,000 years of history when you hold your pen.
Our specially selected Irish burled Elm and bog oak complements the highest jewelry grade Rhodium and Titanium finishes to produce our Woodland writing set of fountain pen and rollerball pen. We have installed a Peter Bock made nib in the fountain pen and an all Swiss-made rollerball refill with Swiss ink and Swiss components to ensure that both pens deliver the best possible writing experience. Replacement rollerball refills are available worldwide as are Peter Bock nibs. We also stock them on our website.
At a time when individuality is becoming increasingly rare, we can engrave either or both pens for you. 20 characters maximum we suggest so not to detract from the wood beauty, click the "CLICK here to Engrave both pens (add your text for each pen in the dialogue box on the cart page)" button and when you add to the cart you will see a dialogue box for you to give us your text for engraving and a free personal note we will put in the deluxe gift box for you.
As a personal, corporate, or club gift, no other pen in the world is exactly like yours!
Sustainability is high on everyone’s agenda, by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill you help the environment by not contributing to the BILLIONS of plastic biros that go to landfill every year.
The fountain pen used a Peter Bock made size 5 nib, it comes with an internationally sized ink cartridge and an ink pump converter so bottled ink can also be used.
The ballpoint pen uses standard-sized Parker type ballpoint refills available on this website and in stationers worldwide
The pen trim is a combination of jewelry grade Rhodium and Gold Titanium
